Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for the past 42 years and what I have on my family history is very extensive. I am researching the names: Davis, Clanton, Woodworth, Brant, Mosbarger, Parker, Willey, Thorla, Humfreville (with variant spellings), Williams, Catron (with variant spellings, such as Kettenring), Hytche, Ingram, Alexander.

I enjoy Find A Grave and have found that the majority of people who are contributors to it are kind, considerate, and very thoughtful, but I have come into contact with some that are not. They have memorials of people who I am related to and they are not, yet they refuse to transfer those memorials to me when I make such a request. This is inconsiderate and unkind. I do not place memorials on Find A Grave of people who I am not related to, but I have transfered some to other's if I find that they are directly descended from that person upon which I do have a memorial.

To the majority of Find A Grave contributors I say, "Continue to be kind and considerate, people appreciate it more than you know."

RE: Nellie Brant
I will try sending the obit again. Maybe it will print out for you on another message.

Do you know how to copy and paste to Nellie's memorial page under the 'Bio" edit?

Hugh O'Neil,
Hugh O'Neil Is my 4th G-grandfather through his son, Charles (and his wife, Martha Lowery (Lowrey), also of Wash. Co.). I have done a lot of work but cannot find proof of his (Hugh) wife's name or where he is buried and wonder if you could tell me where you found this info. I would SO appreciate it. Thanks so much. Dixie

American Revolution
HI, Jack!

We must be cousins!!

I am curious to know if you have found any relatives, perhaps a Thurlo, who served in the Revolution.

If so, would you serve that info with me. I am Ella Josephine Thurlo Williams great, great granddaughter.

Thanks so much.

Henry L. Clanton
I have a question about his death date that you have on his memorial #21768074. You have 5 May 1845. However his will was written 15 Oct 1845 and probated 17 Nov 1845. Can you check your records, please.

Thank you.

Thomas Beasley Dula
Hello, Mr. Davis. I am confused by your listing for Thomas Beasley Dula (#21974438).

You have him buried at Patterson Springs Baptist Church in Cleveland County, but he and his wife spent their entire lives in Wilkes/Caldwell County. Thomas' estate was probated in Wilkes County in November 1829--prior to Caldwell County's creation--where his widow Elizabeth received her widow's allowance; in 1860, she was living alone in the Patterson area of Caldwell County (near the Wilkes/Watauga border). Cleveland County's Patterson Springs Baptist was not founded until 1895 and all of its other burials are from after this period.
